Wedding dress trends will come and go, but one style that will stand the test of time for brides is the romantic lace wedding gown. The delicate fabric – often associated with brides and weddings – comes in a variety of styles, with popular types for weddings including Chantilly lace, Guipure lace, and Alençon lace. Regardless of the selected silhouette for one's wedding dress, lace details add a feminine and romantic element to any gown.
For a traditional style, look for elegant bridal gown styles similar to the lace, long-sleeved wedding dresses worn by Kate Middleton and Grace Kelly. Modernize a classic lace wedding gown by choosing a mermaid silhouette featuring a lace bodice with a ruffled organza skirt, or pair a slim-fitting lace wedding dress with a tulle overskirt to create an elegant ball gown look that can easily be transformed into a sexy style for the reception or after-party. If you opt for an even more modern style, consider a lace crop top paired with a ball skirt, or choose a slim-fitting gown featuring lace appliqués.
